Command of the Language - 07/23/14

  If you have children, you know how exciting it is to see them learning new words and demonstrating a command of the language.  For the past couple of days when my five year old and I have been out, he has asked me whether cars near us are more expensive than mine. 
  At first blush, you're thinking ok, what's this all about but my son is very vehicle aware.  His first favorite car was the Ford Mustang.  Lately he's fascinated with Corvettes.  I have taken him to several cruise-ins and we have looked at a lot of cars. 
  Today, after about four of those "is your car more expensive than that one," we were next to a pick up truck that must have been a dozen years old.  My son says dad, that truck is more expensive than yours. 
  That's when I asked him what expensive means.  He says that means a car is fast.  I laughed out loud.  Just because your little uses a word correctly in a sentence isn't proof they know what it means.  Great memory for me.

STOLEN AMBULANCE

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- An Indiana man went for a joy ride in a new set of hot wheels: a stolen ambulance. But his adventure came to an end when police spotted his flashy ride a few miles away from Community East Hospital Tuesday morning after he crashed through a fence onto a golf course. City emergency medical services spokesman Carl Rochelle tells The Indianapolis Star the ambulance crew was inside the hospital when the man swiped the vehicle. He was arrested and the ambulance had some front-end damage.

ANIMALS-BLESSING

NEW YORK (AP) -- Bless the father, the son and the pet companions. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan has blessed three dozen homeless pets and their rescuers. CBS New York says the Tuesday event outside St. Patrick's Cathedral marked the start of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Volunteers and workers from the Mayor's Alliance for New York City Animals and the Humane Society brought the dogs, cats and a rabbit for prayers.

SPOKANE BUGS

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Some insects are bugging the residents of Spokane, Washington more than usual. Master Gardener horticulture coordinator Tim Kohlauff tells KHQ the gnats swarm this time of year because they're looking to mate. He says they'll land on an ash tree, which he describes as a big singles bar for bugs. Then they'll lay eggs in the bark. But the insects will bug off when it turns cold.

SHOPLIFTING-DRUG CHARGES

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Police in Dover, Delaware who responded to a shoplifting complaint got a two-for-one deal after arresting two people on drug charges. Police say they saw a woman trying to hide something under the seat of her car when they arrived at a Wawa convenience store Friday evening. After searching the vehicle, they found 43 bags of heroin and drug paraphernalia. Twenty-eight-year-old Jamie Hawkins and 53-year-old David Foulk were charged with drug and conspiracy offenses.
